This year has certainly been a big challenge for everyone.
Some individuals have suffered more than others and a large number of businesses have not survived and many are still fighting to survive.
Making a list of how Covid has affected everyone and everything is endless.
For the Rotary Club of Cranleigh, this year celebrating fifty years since its formation, it has been a challenge, as it has been for many organisation and charities who work to serve and support the community in one way or another.
One of the clubs most successful fundraising events each year has been the three day Christmas Street Collection in December supporting local charities.
Due to all the uncertainty, it is not possible to rely on this for 2020, although they hope a street collection may be possible.
This year, Rotary Club of Cranleigh are extending their Christmas Appeal until the end of January and ask for your support for their two chosen Charities – Rowleys Centre for the Community and the Cranleigh Group of Riding for the Disabled.
Both these charities need your help more than ever this year so please donate.
You can make a donation via their JustGiving page at justgiving.com/campaign/cranleighrotarychristmas
Or you can send a cheque, made payable to ‘Cranleigh Rotary Club’ to Cranleigh Rotary, Twin Peaks, Cranleigh, GU6 8SE
Alternatively, put a donation in a yellow collecting box which can be found in the following shops and businesses:
Cranleigh Golf & Country Club, Hans Christmas Andersen Santa Firs, Rawlings of Cranleigh, Cranleigh Handyman, Maple News, Nationwide, One Forty, Cranleigh Furniture, Cranleigh Post Office, Wild & Green, For Earth’s Sake, Manns of Cranleigh and Celebration Cakes
Subject to government and local authority regulations and guidance, look out for a street collection in Cranleigh High Street on 17th and 19th December 2020, and then again on 23rd January 2021.
